Christmas Kindness Appeal 2018

Do Good December Wide 1000

Help us help others this Christmas :)

The festive season should be a time for human connection and simple joys. But sadly Christmas has become commercialised and pressured - and it's a time of year where many people are left feeling anxious and lonely. We need less shopping and more kindness.

Action for Happiness brings people together in local communities to help them improve their mental health, connect with others and take positive action. We have independent scientific evidence that our approach transforms lives and really works.

Our work relies on donations and it's only thanks to the generosity of our individual supporters that we're able to support hundreds of life-changing courses, events, cafes, calendars and our network of volunteers who make such a difference in their local communities.

In 2019, with your support, we will help 2,000 volunteers take action to improve wellbeing in their schools and local communities. Here's how your donation can make a difference:

  • £90 sends someone in need on a life-changing 8-week course
  • £50 gives a teacher essential tools to improve wellbeing in their school
  • £20 enables a local cafe to become a positive meeting place in the Happy Cafe network
  • £10 helps a local volunteer tell 100 new people about the Ten Keys to Happier Living
  • £5 puts a book full of wellbeing actions in the hands of someone in need

Together we really can create a happier and kinder world.
